1 2 NL Straddle UTG. My stack 400. Other has 550. I get A10h on button raise 15 Tight table image The straddle calls flop 6 9 10 rainbow Straddle bets 20. I raise 70 calls. 7 on turn. Check and I bet 120 representing straight. Long thought straddle calls. Jack on river Straddle checks I have 87 left. I check. He shows set of sixes
I think I should have fired third bullet but did not. Thought a) 87 not enough to push off and b) had some showdown equity.
Wonder what folks think I think I should have shoved but on fence

This is definitley a tough position. And I hate straddlers. But being in position, your range is pretty strong here after the turn. Villian calling the turn pretty much is saying he's pot commited. But you wanna push them to act still. Your range is probably 10s through AA (in villians eyes), but on a board like this I think a flush draw would've scared villian more than a straight draw.
Because if you barrel or jam the river, the thought process is AJ, JJ, JQ/JKs. All of those hands you have to ask yourself wheter you think villian would put you on that. Especially after leading out on the turn.

A 3rd bullet isn't getting any hand that beats you to fold here. Checking the river for the reasons you said is correct in my mind.

Shouldn’t have raised the flop. Just call in position. That’s not the type of hand you wanna build a massive pot with. You should be playing pot control.
And if you were raising the flop with top pair, why are you betting the turn on a bluff? If you thought your hand was strong enough to get value from on the flop, why are you then turning your hand into a bluff on the turn?
Raising top pair, especially in position, is rarely a good idea. You shouldn’t lose $200 just on top pair in a $1/$2 game, except for rare instances where you also had a big draw and missed.
